The new Guidelines for Design and Construction of Outpatient Facilities was developed to meet the needs of the health care industry as new treatments are performed in new locations, traditional inpatient services move to outpatient settings, and new practices and facility types emerge. The idea is to create flexible facilities that can readily be reused for newer procedures, technologies, or purposes in the future. The presenters will discuss two approaches to applying the Outpatient Guidelines requirements—one for facility types detailed in the document and the other for facility types that have requirements scattered in multiple chapters. Several case studies are presented to demonstrate using the Guidelines to design different outpatient facility types.
